Returning back to school is always a big transition, not only for children but for parents too.To help you and your child prepare for the new school year, here are some back to school tips to help get you prepared for a fresh start.
Get back into your sleep routine.Set up a regular bedtime and morning time routine to help prepare your child for school.Try to begin this about a week before school begins.
Get organized, the best way to prepare for back to school time is to be organized.Designate a spot in your house for school-related items.Use that spot daily so that your child learns to organize his/her own things and can easily grab them on the way out the door.
Shop for school supplies together.Allow them to pick out their own backpack, lunchbox, etc.This is a great way to give them a little bit of responsibility.
Allow your child to help make their lunch the night before and allow them to choose their own snacks.This will save parents a lot of stress and meltdowns when your child decides they don’t like what you packed for them the next day.
Turn off the TV and Video games.For a lot of children, summertime is filled with endless video games and watching TV.Ease your child into the learning process by turning off the electronics and encourage them to read or play quietly.
Choose clothing the night before and have it laid out for the morning.
Keep shoes organized, it will save you a lot of time knowing where both shoes are when it’s time to go out the door.
Make sure that your children complete their homework before they go to bed. Completing homework in the car is not the best environment for learning.
Keep backpacks fully stocked, a change of clothes and any other important items your child might need should be available at all times.
Organize your own items.This way you and your child can head for the car and be completely stress-free.
Get your child’s yearly checkup. School and germs go hand in hand, so it’s best to get your child’s yearly checkup before school even starts.Get any required vaccinations and ask your pediatrician the best ways your child can stay healthy throughout the school year.
Through preparation and organization, you can ensure that your child will have a smooth transition to the start of the new school year.By doing so, you and your child can enjoy the rest of your summer break!

Choosing Stoneview for my grand-daughter's pre-school was the best decision I've ever made. She is now in kindergarten and receives instruction in a small group setting, allowing for more direct teacher-student interaction and attention. She is reading, developing math skills using organic materials, can recite the continents and writes in her daily journal. She's made wonderful friendships and is able to express both concrete and abstract thoughts. Stoneview is truly a CHILD centered place of learning. The staff provides instruction in a loving, nurturing environment with the child's developmental needs always in mind.

My children adore going to Stoneview Childrens University. The teachers are amazingly nurturing and my children have become so responsible and independent. They really focus on academics while fostering a true love of exploration and learning. Several of my friends children have attended the program and can testify that the experience is stellar. I highly recommend this program.

Stoneview Childrens University is an experience for my twins that neither I nor they will ever forget. They have blossomed by the care of all of the teachers and with the help of the other students to flowers that are in full bloom. We love Stoneview, and Ms. Fish has been an amazing owner and friend to us through all times. I cant imagine where my boys would be without Stoneview.

When looking at private school options we were very concerned about value. Will this or that school be worth our hard earned money? At Stoneview not a day has gone by that we didn't feel that the quality of education has been worth every cent. Our children have worked with all three teachers; every one being fantastic. All work beautifully with each child to provide individual curriculum so that each child reaches their highest potential. Stoneview is much more than a set of classrooms with a playground ~ Stoneview is an extended family village. The love and care received there will last a life time for you and your children.
